2016 Holden Captiva facelift breaks cover in Australia

The facelifted 2016 Holden Captiva has made its official debut in Australia. It’s programmed to go on sale in 2016 and will act as a replacement for the Captiva 5 and the Captiva 7. It’s actually based on the latter and has gained a redesigned front fascia featuring a modified grille and a new look for the headlights that now incorporate the LED daytime running lights. The interior cabin remains very familiar, but Holden has installed its latest MyLink infotainment system featuring a 7-inch screen and with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It comes as standard with a rearview camera and you can go for a five- or seven-seat configuration.

There are plenty of safety and assistance systems to choose from, such as Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Park Assist. Power comes from a 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter gasoline unit with 165 bhp (123 kW) and 169 lb-ft (230 Nm), followed by a stronger V6 3.0-liter with 255 bhp (190 kW) and 212 lb-ft (288 Nm), while a more economical choice would be the 2.2-liter turbodiesel rated at 181 bhp (135 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
